MY EXPERIENCES WITH CREATING ABUNDANCE — I Can’t Afford To Judge Myself.

Plumeria

If I judge myself in any way, for instance that I am not enough, just as I am, then; I start projecting that out on others.

To forgive my judgments of others, I need to forgive the root problem of judging myself first. If I keep in a state of forgiving myself and accepting me warts and all, then my life is much easier and clearer.

I am enough.

CREATING ABUNDANCE — A GENERAL LOOK

Plumeria

Once, I had the experience of rating the main areas of my life.

Finances

Health

Life Work

Social/Relationships

I rated them on a scale of 1 to 10, how I saw them in the moment. Try it.

Notice your lowest rated area. Sit quietly and listen inside. You know that phrase Let Go and Let God, or nature or a higher power. Do that now.

The more you can relax the easier it is to hear your inner wisdom.

With your breathing, focus on exhaling as completely as you can. The inhale will take care of itself.  Push your breath out as long as you comfortably can. Blow out imaginary candles.

As you continue reading, be aware of your breathing. Feel yourself relaxing.

What would improve your area that you gave the lowest rating?

Can you think of something to change about that area of your life?

Is there any new behavior you could try out?

What does this area have to teach you?

Is there anything for you to forgive? I’m not talking about forgiving any particular circumstance in your life, I’m talking about forgiving yourself for judging yourself in any way. Know that you always did the best you could, given your circumstances at that moment.

Right now is where it is happening. Stay in this place, stay in now. Yesterday is over. Abundance is not there. It is available here and now. If you are having trouble staying present with right now — observe the seat of your chair against your body, the temperature in the room, your breathing.

If there are a lot of challenges for you in your life now, there are also blessings. Everything is a blessing. There is a silver lining to every cloud. Even poop can be composted.

A big secret to creating abundance is composting the poop of your life and enriching your life with this fertilizer. If you have lemons make lemonade.

You are the perfect one for your position in life, the perfect CEO of yourself, inc.

Is there any little change you can make to improve your life? I’m talking small here, so small that it will be easy to do. For e.g. smile at someone, or take three relaxing breaths or turn off the light as you leave the room or any number of things that you think of.

Now rate these four areas of your life as they are right now. : )

Finances

Your Health

Your Life Work

Social/Relationships

I hope you find like I did, that they are better. For me, I had a headache and by the time I relaxed a little it was a much better rating.

Bless you. XD

Creating Abundance – How I quadrupled my income in 6 months.

Plumeria

Since my husband’s workplace let 50% of their employees go, (not my husband, thank you God), I feel moved to share my secrets of creating abundance. It is my hope that they will be of use to someone out there.

I really did quadruple my income. It was easy. I was a divorcee working part time and I went to full time. That doubled my income. Then I changed my employer, (out of need for different hours) and I got better hours and double my salary.

Before you dismiss it; I don’t believe this could have happened, if I hadn’t laid the groundwork for it. I believe if you lay the groundwork, it will happen in the way that works for you. It could be winning the lottery, it could be a new better job, it could be an inheritance, or any number of ways, probably as many different ways as there are people.

If you’ve been through challenging personal relationships, like divorce, maybe you have learned like I did, that the more you evolve yourself, the better partner you attract to yourself, better partner as in better fit for your needs.

I believe it is the same with creating abundance. The more you evolve, the more aware you are of the abundance in your life.

When I quadrupled my income, I used a shotgun approach, that is I blasted ahead with everything I had. It makes it challenging to know which things worked best. That is, it was not a controlled study. Over the coming Wednesdays, I will post about each of the ways I worked my process.

For this week, write a paragraph about your financial state. You don’t have to share it with anyone, it won’t be graded. It’s just for you. Have it handy next Wednesday.

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

This week I was sick and I let go of most things and hung out in bed a lot.  I looove to do this.

It makes me think I could schedule in a day sometimes to do that and then maybe my body wouldn’t have to get sick to get me to do it.

I started to schedule in a day off and that feels like pressure. hmm.

Do you all think you get sick sometimes because your body needs a rest?

I wonder what the early warning signs are?

If I knew, I would say loss of my sense of humor and thinking that I have to accomplish in order to feel worthwhile.

I feel excellent right now. Maybe I’ll go play.

XD

A sick day.

I’m sick today and feel very behind, yet I’m spending the day mostly in bed.

Here’ a photo of a beautiful garden at the Imperial Villa.

Will be back on Friday.

Stay well, y’all.

Book Review – A TIME TO GRIEVE by Carol Staudacher.

A few days ago I woke in the wee hours with a lot of anxiety, think terror. I realized it was about not wanting to lose my loved ones and have to go through the pain of grieving. My ego tries to protect me, by suggesting that I not love anyone and save myself that pain. I did try that, when I was young and it didn’t work. I think our nature at it’s most basic, is loving.

A psychology professor sent me a book, after my second brother died. It’s called A TIME TO GRIEVE -Meditations for healing after the death of a loved one, by Carol Staudacher.

TITLE: A TIME TO GRIEVE -Meditations for healing after the death of a loved one.

AUTHOR: Carol Staudacher

PUBLISHER: HarperOne; 1 edition (July 8, 1994)

Paperback: 256 pages

PRICE: $14.99

In it she states many common feelings people grieving have and then a quote. She continues the page with a meditation about that issue.

Here are two quotes that stood out to me.

Grief itself is a medicine. by William Cowper.

He had ceased to meet us in particular places, in order to meet us everywhere. by C.S. Lewis.

I like to think that my departed loved ones are with me in my heart. It helps me to think that when they die they become omnipresent to me.

Anyway, the book is a blessing to anyone grieving. It was and is to me.

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*
I’m in Japan today and won’t necessarily be able to link up. I am thinking of you all however.

*
Today I am going to Sanjusangendo temple. The first time I went I was moved to tears by the overwhelming compassion. I won’t say more in case you get to go some time. I knew I wanted to return here.
*
Also my husband is close to impossible to buy for. Last time I was here, I found a gift for him that he has kept in his den.
*
They sell these satin embroidered bags, about the size and shape of a tea bag.
*

*

This one has a tree embroidered on it and is a blessing for health.

*

They have all different ones. I bought some for the grandchildren, with an image of a boy and girl. They are a blessing for children. One lady in my group was asking if they had one to find a mate. I don’t think they did.

*

As I recall they cost about 500 to 800 yen. ( about $6 to $10.)

*

*

*

This golden one looks like it came from Sanjusangendo.

*

This is paper with some thickness inside.

*

*

If my memory is correct, this one I got for myself. It’s a prayer for relief of headaches. Now, let’s see if they have one for memory. XD

*

Sending you all a prayer and good wishes.

Stay Well All

I’m visiting at my daughter’s and I’ve been sick with a cold and cough.

Now today my grandson is sick with similar symptoms.

I heard myself starting to say my worst nightmare had come true. Then I realized it could be so much worse.

Now I am filled with gratitude that this is our challenge and not anything worse.

I wrote this two days a go and the children are responding quickly.

WEDNESDAY WISDOM – Psycho-synthesis

Wednesday Wisdom

*

We would rather be ruined than changed,

We would rather die in our dread

Than climb the cross of the moment

And let our illusions die.

By W.H. Auden

*
Shortmama is taking the week off so no From Muffin Top To Skinny Jeans this week.

*

Instead what’s happening is that I did a psycho-synthesis process. I called forward my inner aspect that is in charge of making choices.

*

As I did it, I laughed thinking it would be like an aspect in the cockpit of a 747 with all those controls and only be ‘allowed’ to push one button.

*

Are you getting why I needed to call forward and work with this aspect? That I am a little constrained?

*

What came forward was a little grey bird. it’s feathers were wet and looked as if it had been groomed with an eggbeater. It was very scrawny.

*

I cried just to look at the puny thing I had created in my consciousness.

*

I was doing a process with it called going up the mountain. The idea is you take an aspect and by going up the mountain, you go to a higher level of perspective.

*

As we started up the mountain, I thought, This little bird is too puny to walk all that way with his little bird feet. I picked him up and he hopped onto my right shoulder. I felt my shoulder relax and then my left shoulder relaxed too. I used to carry a lot of tension in my shoulders.

*

We walked on and up, and as we came out of a misty cloud, the bird transformed into a beautiful white dove. It was all plump and fuffy and majestic.
*

Oddsock

*

My inner peace, I thought.

*

At the mountain top, I conversed with the wise beings who reside there. What came up for me is that no matter what choice I make in any given situation, I can still love all involved. It takes the pressure off for me to know this.

*

I received an affirmation:

I am loving regardless of race, creed, color, situation, circumstance or environment.

*

*

When it was time to go down the mountain I flew on the back of the bird. Peace all.

*

In Oprah’s newsletter this morning I read a line by Martha Beck

Once you begin listening to your heart, I guarantee it’s going to say some things that shock you—otherwise, you wouldn’t have locked it away in the first place. You may discover that your heart wants to spend your paycheck on flowers or wear purple spandex to a board meeting. You don’t have to act on these impulses, but you must not judge or repress them.

*

When I tuned in, I saw my inner child in my mind’s eye. She was covered in jewels. I am a minimalist. My inner child is not. She doesn’t care if the jewels are plastic – the more the better.

*

Rajkumar1220

*

In the mindset of not judging or repressing, I decided I could wear a gaudy ring I have, as I headed out to the beach.

*

My minimalist self was wearing shorts and a shirt and flip flops. I planned to walk at the beach barefoot. I found two large gem rings to include with my outfit.

*

I was smiling as I walked to the beach.  I noticed now my inner child had on fairy wings, larger than she is. They are translucent gauzy white with sparkles and specs of color.

*

I decided I could wear imaginary fairy wings and immediately my posture improved.

*

Giladr

*

Then I noticed I had antennae with little red hearts on the tips. The antenae were communicating fairy talk with lots of inkle sounds. Pinkle, twinkle, vinkle, hinkle, jinkle, tinkle.

*

I giggled and realized other people at the beach probably did not even know they had fairy wings on, but my antennae were communicating with them anyway.

*

I wasn’t planning to get back to jogging yet, until I realized fairy wings give lift.

*

I think I will keep my wings on all day. My husband doesn’t know he has some on too. Inkle, pinkle, twinkle.

*
